Teaser Tuesday: The Dark Prophecy

tuesteas

Hosted by A Daily Rhythm, Teaser Tuesday is a bookish meme meant to highlight passages from books you are currently reading.

Here are the rules (as described by A Daily Rhythm):

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I don’t think it’s possible to open up a Rick Riordan book and not laugh out loud. Currently I’m reading The Dark Prophecy, the second in The Trials of Apollo series, and I’m pretty sure this one is funnier than the last. Check out this teaser to see what I mean:

When he opened his beak, I reach inside and pressed the Tots on his warm tongue. Like a true gentleman, he waited until I removed my hand before swallowing down the snack.

Also each chapter heading is a freaking haiku! Look:

Son of a Midas
You, sir, are a stupid-head
Here, have an ostrich

So are you a fan of Rick Riordan’s extensive collection of books? In need of a little humor in your life? Let me know in the comments below!
